Lara Giants Super Clinic Dec 2016

What an awesome day we had today at our first super clinic.  We had over 30 kids split into 4 groups, each spending 30 minutes at each station before progressing onto the next.  We had…


  1. Attacking Basketball With Joel McFall – Lara Giants Div 1 Mens & Senior Club Champion

While with Joel, the kids learnt skills around dribbling & attacking the basketball

2. Shooting Fundamentals with Jackson Bentley – Lara Giants Div 1 Mens & Basketball Geelong Div 1 MVP

Jackson showed the kids the fundamentals of shooting, from stance to technique & follow thru

3. Personal Fitness with Adam Hinkley – Personal Trainer – No Limit Fitness

At this station the kids got to learn that there is more to basketball than just shooting, with fitness & core strength a vital part

4. Passing with Lara Coaches Tania Thorpe, Damian Withers & Jason Aherne

The last stop was a few passing drills from the basics, to 3 man & 5 man weave along with a number of other great passing activities

Overall it was a beautiful sunny day where the kids worked hard for 2.5 hours & hopefully picked up some new skills & tricks to help make them better players.  Remember kids, to ensure you get the most out of this session you have to put in the time to practice what you learnt.  Repetition is vital, you have a long summer ahead, look to practice…

  • your dribbling – one ball, two balls etc,
  • your shooting focusing on your footwork, your hand positioning & your follow thru,
  • your fitness running, core strength etc
  • your passing ensuring you use your wrist & control the passes to ensure they are flat & fast


Next session is planned for Term 1 for the U12’s, with so many kids it is bound to fill up fast. More details in the new year.
